Interior signs work together to direct consumers what to do and where to go. Like exterior signage, interior signage may consist of several sign types, but should certainly include more than a traditional mix of ADA and wayfinding signs. A site audit will determine what solutions incorporate structural elements and enhance your built environment.
Monument signs are mounted low to the ground and are often used with high foot traffic or unimpeded motor-vehicle traffic site lines, or to stand out from a crowd of one-story buildings. Without favorable sight lines, a pylon sign may be a better fit. We’ll help you find the solution that best fits your objective.
A pylon sign’s defining characteristic is its high elevation sight line which allows property and store identification at a great distance. For multi-tenant landlord and property owners or managers the pylon sign serves the critical function of communicating a shopping center’s tenants to potential consumers.
Wayfinding is an important component of any sign program: it creates a custom identity for your built-space, provides a navigable path of travel, and helps manage consumer decision points. A well-executed wayfinding program makes the consumer experience more enjoyable and efficient.
